||PRAISE FOR Mo's Mustache NPR 's Book Concierge's Guide to 2013's Great Reads Monster + mustache = 'Huzzah!' With a soupcon of cool.... Author/illustrator Clanton's super-simple line-drawing monsters in pastel colors perfectly communicate the big emotions of Mo's tale. The half text/half speech-bubble narrative will engage storytime audiences and lapsitters with a minimum of inflection on the reader's part. Requests for repeats are a certainty, and small ones will learn a lesson about individuality while enjoying this delightfully fun monster tale. Mo's mustache? Magnifique! - Starred review, Kirkus Reviews Huzzah! Laugh-aloud funny, Clanton's story also offers a way to begin discussing individuality or peer pressure. - School Library Journal
